Abbey Wood made it as a finalist in the MAPIC Awards 2014 for the Best Refurbished Shopping Centre and was also shortlisted for the BCSC Gold Awards 2014.

Andrew Moor Associates: These are the words from the artist in regards to his inspiration.

I used a photograph of the railway at the station snaking away into the distance.
This was partly because Abbeywood was founded in 1912 when a big railway coach-building factory was built there.
The feature is at the entrance to an out of town shopping plaza.
The wall of glass is about 270 sqm. The dichroic glass fins are 4.5m tall.


The zig-zag glazing uses drawn images of the same two viruses, this time the drawings are more detailed and are printed on glass using ceramic inks.
